The MLB Network announced the hiring of Phillies Postgame Live analyst Mitch Williams. He will be the analyst for the 24-hour network’s signature show, “MLB Tonight,” which will compete with ESPN’s “Baseball Tonight.”
Joining Williams will be host Greg Amsinger and insider Jon Heyman of SI.com. They will also team up for “Hot Stove,” a nightly offseason show.
I would assume that means Williams is off the Comcast SportsNet roster. He was one of the better analysts I’ve seen in baseball, a guy who shoots straight and understands many facets of the game. Easily likable, he’ll translate well on the new network as its high-profile studio analyst. A great coup for the guy, and I wish him luck.
